Keep Your Head Up

Sometimes you feel all alone when the days seem long. Going down a path where the rights seem wrong. On the road of darkness. No lights being shown. But no matter how far you get. It leads back home. So we stay stuck in the perdicament That you tried to get out of Climbing out a hole you can't get pulled out of Spending time on ya knees Praying for a miracle Walking with your head high Even though the pain umbearable You gather with many But hold hands with a very few You can share plates with others But give your last to your crew And you can't tell difference Cuz you can't trust them neither It's the same face everyday But showing different features Click click. Can you picture this Those same little bastards Trying to make you quit Saying they got ya back But they ain't too legit Thinking ya'll vibin together Then they switch up quick

Your poem touched my heart! May God's blessings touch your situation and make life easier for you. I pray that he gives you strength and may he always walk by your side through life. There are people in this world who will try and make you feel bad. I hope you will resist them and do what is right ~~Darlene

As idealistic as groups seem to be they hate people who seem to be escaping to other things and quickly haul them back to maintain the status quo. For all the abuse Dr King and Mr Mandela suffered they never let go their dignity or their vision.None of us should ever stop striving for a better life. Loved the urgency of this verse. Kind regards, Ian
